It doesnt have to be thin or even light just small in lenght and width. The idea one would have a DVD or

DVD/CD burner. built in ethernet and a couple usb 2.0 ports. I could even live without the DVD if the HDD

was big enough.The big end would have a 12 inch screen but I prefer even smaller like 10 inch or less.

for 10 inchers, look at Sony, and fujitsu. Great quality

Thankfully because of centrino technology their performance aint half bad and niether is power consumption.

Expect to pay an arm and an asshole.

Toshiba used to.
Want a laptop the size of a video cassette?
Does it matter to you that it's a pentium 75?

They're called the Toshiba Librettos. Toshiba has new versions, but they only sell them in Japan. There are several small importers. Google to find them...


ETA: I still have one of those pentium75 models. works well enough to surf ARFCOM occasionally.

I'd do the same, if I could get the network card installed.

Acer makes some small ones in their "TravelMate" series. No built-in DVD, but you can hook one up through the USB2.0 port.

In their older models, pre-USB2.0, they had a proprietary separate combination CD/floppy. Don't bother with those if they still make them; they are badly designed.

ETA: Oh yeah, Sony used to sell a half-sized laptop which was small, light, had a built-in pinhole camera, and was expensive.

I've got that part working, but no dial up for my ISP.
If I could get a network card installed, I could surf at hotels, and if I could could get a wireless card installed, I could surf hot spots. And if frogs had wings...
